On Being Tender & Open

aa87e17f64137b5cdba579e03a2bde1d

“Being tender and open is beautiful.

As a woman, I feel continually shhh’ed.

Too sensitive. Too mushy. Too wishy washy.

Don’t let someone steal your tenderness.

Don’t allow the coldness and fear of others to tarnish your perfectly vulnerable beating heart.

Nothing is more powerful than allowing yourself to truly be affected by things.

Whether it’s a song, a stranger, a mountain, a rain drop, a tea kettle, an article, a sentence, a footstep, feel it all – look around you.

All of this is for you.

Take it and have gratitude.

Give it and feel love.”

Zooey Deschanel

Gentleman vs. Player

20130715-114100.jpg

A man who flatters her vs. a gentleman who compliments her.

A man who spends money on her vs. a gentleman who invests in her.

A man who views her as property vs. a gentleman who views her properly.

A man who lusts after her vs. a gentleman who loves her.

A man who believes he is a gift to women vs. a gentleman who believes she’s a gift to him.

Today marks the beginning of wedding celebrations in Sweden for King Carl Gustaf’s second daughter, Princess Madeline to British businessman, Chris O’Neil.  In 2010 Princess Madeline moved to New York City where she began working with the World Childhood Foundation, an organisation her mother co-founded.  It was in New York where the princess met Mr O’Neil and in January of the following year that the couple began dating.  The happy couple announced their engagement in October of last year.  Mr O’Neil has requested that he remain a private citizen and not share his wife’s royal titles and will continue to pursue a career in finance after the marriage.
